Kill Me Softly - Sarah Cross Other reviews like this at The Book Babe Note: Due to copy an paste, formatting has been lost.It was beautiful. It was imaginative, and full of betrayal and intrigue, and I loved every second of it. I couldn't put it down, for even one moment away from this book was torture. I loved how all the fairytales were inter-weaved, and it was particularly awesome how fairytales and endings are passed down. Didn't work right the first time? No matter, it will happen again. And again, over and over, no matter the last ending.How do you think Snow White feels knowing that she's going to die, and which one of her friends will be charged with cutting out her heart? How do you think Beauty feels, knowing who her beast is, and that no matter how much she hates him, she will have to save him. How do you think they all feel? Their entire lives are mapped out for them, and the know how it ends.It was very interesting to view all the fairytales in such a different way, because it always brought new twists and turns to the table. It also gave you a real sense of hopelessness, though. Some things should never be concrete.I really liked the character of Mira, because she still thought that she could change her future, and that people can overcome their demons. Not everyone has that kind of faith in people, so it made her an especially memorable and amazing character. She never gave up hope that Blue and Felix could change, or that any one of the characters stories could be changed. And maybe they can. Maybe the future isn't concrete.This book was bittersweet, sad, devastating, and through all that, it still managed to have a happy ending. It amazes me how one author could so drastically change all the original fairytales, yet make them still a thing of beauty, and something to be feared. It truly was dark and heartbreaking, and I loved every second of it.Plus, I really loved Blue. :)♠♠♠♠Favorite Quote:I lost her. I destroyed her. But I never forgot her. I never let her go.
